The aim of this paper is to emulate commercial PV module under different parameters and environmental condition (insolation or temperature change) by using Photovoltaic Power Profile Emulation (PPPE) software and Magna DC power supply. This method can be used, where the real PV panels are not available or hard to work within lab conditions. The PPPE software automatically calculates solar array voltage and current profiles based on predefined values entered by the user. After this, profiles are sequentially sent to a Magna-Power supply. The user can define a limitless number of profiles to be emulated and sequenced over a given period of time.
